Hello, Friday.  We're about to kick off the weekend with some Before and
After project photos and it wouldn't be the same without you!  Let's get started.

    A chevron print and a paint job completely updated this 1960s chair:
I'm Busy Procrastinating

    Look what was hiding under the old upholstery:

Hammers & High Heels

A thrift store shelf unit was painted and turned into a mini-bar:  Source

$4 thrift store lamp + $2 can of spray = Amazing!

You're not going to believe the transformation of this credenza:                                                              

Vintage Key Antiques                                  Beautiful!

  This dresser was sanded, painted, and given new hardware:

House of Moseley

Ever ask yourself, "Why didn't I think of that?"  

That's right - when this $12 Goodwill desk was refinished a dry eraser
board was used for the top.  Brilliant!

    A pair of inexpensive end tables were rehabbed into fun accent pieces:
    Craft Habit

    A dated Toronto kitchen was given a chic Scandinavian makeover:


Painting cabinets is a HUGE decision.  The homeowners of this
kitchen chose wisely:


An old door was stripped and cut down to make a table top for an antique
sewing machine base:

 Design Sponge

This table's beautiful carving is more pronounced after being painted:

A used furniture store end table was painted, and given a faux leather top:

Many parts of the country are going to have gorgeous weather this weekend so let's end today's post with some motivating Before & After landscape projects (just in case you feel the urge to dig in the dirt).

     JB's Lawn Care


     Louisville Allscapes

The rock border and steps are charming:
    Before                                                                                   After

I'm sure the home owners association is thrilled with these results:
     Frost Landscaping

This 'after' proves that an exterior renovation isn't complete 'til the landscaping is updated:

This house looks so much more attractive now that the landscaping has been tamed:

I hope you have a fun and productive weekend.  See you Monday for some inspiring repurposing.
